My best friend is visiting me from western New York state for her 40th birthday. We're both foodies, and I was thinking that it might be fun to do a "food crawl"--get a small plate and a drink at several good food places in LA. It will be Labor Day weekend. I'm looking for suggestions for tasty Chow-worthy restaurants that would fit well with this theme. I'm looking to stay in one general area, but they don't have to be SUPER close--a 15 minute drive between each is fine, which could possibly stretch to all over LA, which is fine with me! It's a food tour!
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
